Spotify Web Player Expected To Arrive Next Year

Posted Nov 17, 2012

Ever since Spotify launched in the United States, the music startup company has been growing by leaps-and-bounds.  Earlier this week I wrote about how Spotify raised $100 million in funding at a $3 billion valuation.  Now the company is ramping up their efforts to build a web browser version of their music service.

Currently you can only use Spotify through their downloadable desktop software and the mobile app.  Spotify’s web browser version is being tested with a small audience right now.

“Yes. I can confirm that we’ve launched a beta version of a Spotify web player that we’re testing with a small number of users. Potentially it’s a great additional feature for times you can’t play music through the desktop app, like at work or at a friend’s house. We’ll have more detail on the web player next year,” stated Graham James of Spotify in a statement to Gizmodo.
